Cummins Announces Further Engine Biz Changes
Following its mid-January announcement of the reorganization of its engine business, Cummins Inc. has now announced additional changes to that group.
In January, Dave Crompton assumed leadership of the newly formed Heavy-Duty, MidRange and Light-Duty (HMLD) Engine Business. Crompton had been vice president and general manager for the global MidRange Engine Business. Crompton has spent nearly all of his 25- year Cummins career in the Engine Business.
Cummins said the HMLD Engine Business is now a single global operating entity with products ranging from 2.8-liter to 15-liter to serve customers in eight major markets - truck, bus, light commercial vehicle, pickup truck/SUV, construction, agriculture, compact construction and marine. The group represents, “a significant portion of Cummins overall revenue and over 70 percent of Engine Business Unit sales,” the company said.
As another part of that reorganization, Cummins has now announced the appointment of Jeff Jones to lead the newly formed North America Engine Business. As Vice President - North America Engine Business, Jones will lead Cummins OEM engine sales, field sales and support, and market communications organizations. Crompton and Jones will report to Rich Freeland, president - Engine Business and vice president - Cummins Inc.
